It's a Terrible Time to be Protestant

Thank you, God, for my Catholic faith!  Before I go further, let me say that I know some amazing, inspirational non-Catholic Christians.  However, as a head-over-heels-in-love kind of Catholic, I look around, sometimes in horror and sadness at some of the congregations outside of the Church.  They are missing out on so much at a time when we need it all.

Get the Hierarchy Right to Avoid Insanity

How many of the two-dozen animal rights activists who gathered in Downtown Ann Arbor to mourn deer lives are prolife?  I bet I could not count them on one finger.  I am all for photosynthesis, but it’s not a sin to kill a fatted calf.  Meat is not even my favorite food choice--smoothies, salads, and corn chips are--but I defend your right to eat a hamburger.

Fr. Jerzy an Intercessor for Religious Freedom

Father Jerzy Popieluszko died for human rights and religious freedom in Poland on October 9, 1984.  He did not need to do it.  There was a path to freedom in the United States offered to him, but he chose death rather than be silenced by a government that hated the truth.  Fr. Jerzy is a hero for such a time as this.
